About her Art
Åland Islands, Finland
I was born in 1949 and raised in Finland. After my studies I joined
the Finnish Foreign Service.
I have painted since my childhood. I was fascinated with the oil
colors and had even some exhibitions at school.
During my career I only painted for my own pleasure. I retired and
started again in 2003, but this time I wanted to do abstract paintings

a series of lectures by Arne Isacsson, very reputable abstract

In 2017 I switched to acrylic paints. I enjoy painting in acrylics. I
love to create compositions with strong colors. I had not yet
exhibited my paintings before I was invited to participate in Spazio
Tolomeo contemporary artists exhibition in Milano, January 2023.
